A double Challenge

This card will, I hope, do for two challenges.

The first is Rainbow Lady's Challenge this week which is to use peel-offs as the main image on your card and not just for sentiments. I hardly ever use peel-offs myself but I happen to have a large stash of oriental ones which I bought an eternity ago and this was the ideal opportunity to use a few. 

I stuck the main one,the kimono, on acetate which makes it suitable for the second challenge which is Arty Girlz Weekly Challenge #69.

The kimono was coloured in with Sakura Souffle pens for the decoration and a Copic Ciao for the main part. Backed with an oriental paper from an old Joanna Sheen pad it was then mounted with sticky pads on black gloss card on a red card base.

I managed to use up quite a few more peel-offs and the final flourish was a little chinese tassel which, I suppose,doesn't really go with a japanese kimono does it?


  1. I think they go just fine Ali and the card is super. Thanks for playing Love Cynthia x

  2. They are mixed cultures, but sit well together on your power card - red and black = very strong!! it is lovely.

  3. I think they go perfectly too Ali and I love this card the colours are so rich
